    Default Difference??....FJ40 BJ40??

    I have a question (unable to find answer using search)
    Question is what is the difference between BJ40 & FJ40, on seaching the web i found that
    "The F series cruisers are gas engines" , "The "B" series cruisers have diesel engines"

    is this the only difference?
    If better were within, better would come out.

    not the best source but easy to understand:

    that's what i'm guessing too,.. seems odd but then again that chassis design is the J4X (X can be any number) and is generically called the 40series.

    The 40 Series was produced from 1961 to 1984. This is the classic Land Cruiser. It is a two door with removable hardtop / softop. Early models had a 3 speed transmission that was replaced in 1974 with a 4 speed, and in 1983 with a 5 speed. It is was produced with several engine types. FJ40's with the 3.8 liter 6 cylinder F engine came to North America around 1963. FJ40's with the 4.2 liter 2F engine started in 1974. BJ40's with the 3.0 liter 4 cylinder B engine came to Canada from '78-'80 but were offered elsewhere for longer. BJ40's with the 3.4 liter 3B came to Canada from '81-'84.
